Ex-Barnsley youngster Mason Holgate in Twitter storm

The Football Association says it is "aware" of homophobic tweets which appear to have been posted on the now deleted Twitter account of Everton defender Mason Holgate.

Holgate then complained to Madley after the game that Firmino had used the word "negro".

The @MasonHolgateee account has been deactivated but screengrabs of the tweets have been circulated in the aftermath of Holgate's allegation about Firmino.

Referee Bobby Madley has filed a report to the FA which confirms the allegation but says the official did not witness the remarks being made.

The 21-year-old is under investigation from the FA and could be charged with misconduct after the tweets came to light following Holgate's bust up with Roberto Firmino during the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round last Friday.

Madley had to separate the pair but did not book either player at the time.

That has apparently strengthened Firmino's defence against the accusations and may result in no action being taken against the Brazil global.

After running back onto the field to confront the defender, Firmino is alleged to have called Holgate a "son of a b***h" in Portuguese before calling him a "n***o" - comments that infuriated Holgate and led to a scuffle between opposing players. That translates as: "Are you insane, you son of a bitch?"

Holgate might receive some leniency due to the fact that he was only 15 when he posted his own tweets, but the FA tend to take a dim view of these incidents.

Watford striker Andre Gray was banned for four games while playing for Burnley in 2016 when historic homophobic tweets posted in 2012 were uncovered.
